Their mother Tori Lee Castillo, 39, has been arrested on suspicion of child abuse. Those good Samaritans coached the 5-year-old on how to open the trunk using an emergency latch.

When Castillo eventually emerged from the store, her excuse that her babysitter hadn't shown up mattered little.

Police said they received a call Thursday after a witness saw the woman stuff the children in the trunk and leave her auto at a parking lot. "I turned to my friend and I'm like, 'There's people in this trunk".
